  1. That is really my main takeaway from these elections too. Even if Biden (now likely) wins, personally I wouldn't have much reason to celebrate if I was a Democrat in the US. Trump has not lost popularity since 2016, in fact, given the 2+ million extra votes he received in total (and still counting), you could argue he even grew in popularity, and that is despite COVID-19 and all the other stuff. I'll be very very curious to see how Biden will be able to deal with over one third of America's population still clearly disapproving of Democrat policies. It could turn out to be a pyrrhic victo
  2. The one thing doesn‘t exclude the other. Any preacher who has been proven to do this should be barred from ever holding religious service again, regardless of the institution. It‘s more than understandable though that the focus right now should be on islamic centers, particulary the ones with salafist and/or foreign ties, as they have been the ideological breeding ground for the majority of terror attacks in Europe the last years. If we continue to object to the fact „Islamism is a massive threat to European society“ with „All radicalism is a threat“, and to demands like „We need to
  3. In this particular attack (but also in many previous ones) the terrorist was a native-born citizen, so deportation is tricky...Still, I agree tougher measures need to be introduced. This guy who committed the attack yesterday was known to police and intelligence service, he was arrested when he wanted to leave Austria for Syria to join ISIS in fighting. He was sentenced to prison for 22 months, but released early because he took part in a 'de-radicalization' programme and pretended to have turned away from his beliefs - he tricked authorities and they stopped surveilling him. I know we in the
  4. Yes, I agree with you on that point. Again, as with many recent issues, it seems to me like many are only thinking in black or white patterns. It's either "You must totally support all forms of protests" or the exact opposite. Sorry, but what does any of this in the below clips have to do with fighting against racial inequality? Protesting a crime by committing a crime yourself, as robbery and theft clearly is? And it's not just the big chain stores that got robbed and looted, as clearly seen here. Again, what does destroying the property - and in many cases the
  5. I actually do it find it quite ironic how she pretty much served us Dante's Inferno with her performance (and how everyone criticized her that it wasn't fitting), and one year later, look at where we are
  6. Just listened to it this evening again after a while, this is definitely growing to one of my favorite songs off the record. The variety of instruments and different layers give this song such a rich and full sound. From the Moroccan Gnawa rhythms (finally I know what that 'guitary' sound in the background is) to the strings, the trumpets, the choir... My favourite part is the build-up from the verses to the chorus, where the strings intensify and the trumpets hit. Gives me goosebumps every time. Underrated track for sure!
  7. Stunning indeed! Reminds me of the 2017 Vogue Germany cover, similar styling. Will look forward to reading the interview.
  8. At this point this is actually more of a myth though. I don't post too often in the political section, but it really should be pointed out that the problem of far-right populism has, as unfortunate as it is, become much much more complex than this. As an example, in Germany the far-right AfD became the second-strongest party in a couple of regional elections this year, but what really rocked the boat was when statistics came out showing who voted whom. Because, unlike what is often claimed, there were big amounts of supporters from pretty much any economic status, age and gender - women,
  9. Haha good on her for showing the lyrics, now we can also rest the case of 'fight against the anguish vs. English' I'd greatly appreciate a lyrics sheet for Come Alive next, I can never understand what she's mumbling in the pre-chorus
  10. You guys remember this small clip from the Apple Music Interview back in April? We never got to see more of it, and I was wondering if they're ever going to show sth more...well, I checked on Apple Music now and they have put up two more clips. One she's talking about Dark Ballet and in the other one she gets asked which previous era was Madame X inspired by the most (hint, she doesn't give a clear answer haha) I can't link but just check it out for yourself if you've subscribed there
  11. Thank you! Sounds very interesting indeed. I might check it out for myself now!
  12. Oh wow, could you tell those were older interview excerpts or is it brand new? Hope sb can capture the interview parts
  13. Yes, I get what you mean. Critical comments, those that are voiced respectfully, do deserve to have a place IMO. Sth I've always liked about the M fanbase is the variety of preferences and opinions, unlike many, and I would say, most other fan communities (of pop singers, mind you) that have pretty much turned into cults where all have to follow one line of opinion. (So also to @cocolattee, I don't see anything wrong with your post) The problem is unfortunately, at least from what I observed, many don't really know when the line is crossed which is why, way too often here, instead of cri
  14. I can't @ how this word is censored here now Anyway, wanted to add I loved her military style jacket. Her styling this era so far is totally on point to me.
